Logitech_ipod_Rechargeable_Speaker_S715i_frontLogitech has launched a new iPod dock and for the first time the company has included eight custom-tuned drivers – double Logitech’s previous iPod docks. The company said the improvement allows the S715i iPod dock to “hit those crisp high notes and give you deep base” and described the unit as “a bold sound you can carry around”.

“The S715i uses two three-inch laser-tuned neodymium drivers for a rich mid range, two half-inch neodymium tweeters for crisp high notes, and four two-inch passive radiators for deep bass,” the spokeswoman told AG. “The result is rich, balanced audio in a compact iPod speaker system.”

The dock’s NiMH rechargeable battery lets you listen to music for up to eight hours without plugging in (although actual battery life will vary with use, settings and environmental conditions).

There’s also a wireless remote control to give you command over functions like power, volume, play, pause, shuffle, skip and repeat from up to 30 feet (10 meters) away, without moving to spoil that tan.

The Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S715i should be available in the UK this month for a suggested retail price of £149 including VAT. It comes with a travel case with space for the power adapter and remote.
